Jail? Just send him to detention

I don’t know how I missed this, but it was revealed during his corruption trial that while governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich “hid in the bathroom…to avoid discussing complex issues with his budget director” and that he worked “less than nine hours a week and had trouble focusing on legislation”. Last week the jury in his corruption trial found him guilty of lying to the F.B.I. in his supposed attempts to sell Obama’s senate seat, and Blago now faces up to 5 years in prison.

Now Blagojevich is obviously guilty, and if nothing else deserves years in prison for appearing on Celebrity Apprentice (an NBC reality show! How could you?). But since Blagojevich apparently hides in bathrooms to avoid his budget director and can’t focus on his work, he sounds less like a criminal and more like an ADHD tween.

Jail may not be the right place for Blago. Normal behavior like that usually just gets an XBox or texting privledges taken away. Perhaps we could just seize his overworked blowdriers? Stuff him full of Ritalin?

Basically this guy is so out of touch with reality it’s best to treat/punish him like the child that he is, and maybe even congratulate him because, hey, it’s nice to see a politician hiding in the bathroom instead of the closet.
